STEP INTO SWEDEN'S MOST FAMOUS HOME
THE FARM OPENS UP AND INVITES LIKE NEVER BEFORE
Welcome to Lilla Hyttnäs - home to one of the greatest artists Sweden has ever seen.
When Carl and Karin Larsson moved home to Sweden after several years abroad, they were given a small cabin in Sund-born by Karin's father. The cottage in Dalarna became Carl's and Karin's joint art project where their artistic talents resulted in an unusually modern and personal architecture, coloring and interior design. Through Carl's paintings, it has become one of the world's most famous homes. The light, Karin's free interior design style and the lively family life, as depicted in Carl's beloved watercolors, have become synonymous with the image of Sweden.
Now Lilla Hyttnäs invites you in and shows off in a way that has never been seen before. With Elsa Billgren as stylist, interesting texts by Ulrika Ewerman and fantastic photography by Mira Wickman, all admirers of the turn-of-the-century artists get the chance to discover their greatest work: the home.
ETT HEM gives a unique insight into one of Sweden's most famous homes. With Carl and Karin Larsson's life and artistry in focus, lifestyle expert Elsa Billgren shows how you can create the same feeling in your own home.
CARL & KARIN LARSSON were active in Sweden at the turn of the century. Their artistry worked in a strong symbiosis – among other things through her creating the environments that he then depicted. The motifs from their home Lilla Hyttnäs in Sundborn have come to represent the image of Sweden and are loved worldwide.
